TSG HTML5 Class Part 2

Today's our talk is focusing on web forms. Hopefully it is not too hard for you all. Please feel free to send me email or leave comments in the blog for any questions you have.

Today's Presentation

The following is the Linkedin talk I mentioned in the class, you need to signup first if you plan to go.  But it is optional, only go if you are interested, it is a field trip for our class.

How to Make Your JavaScript Fast ( Linkedin Campus )
Someone asked in the class
"How do I know which browser support what?"

Ok, now below are some cool tools for your reference

Also, someone asked this in the class
"Can we use the HTML5 form now? But not all the browser supports it?"

Well, yes, you can use it now.  For those browser that doesn't support the new form attribute will fall back to "text", and you will need extra javascript to do the validation and extra css for styling.  Meanwhile, there are already written tools to make HTML5 form cross browser and so you don't need to recreate the wheel again - http://code.google.com/p/webforms2/

Reading for this week


Create as many web forms as you would like and test different features.   ( Note: you don't have to use cssdesk, that's just a handy tool only. )

For your homework, here is a good example for you to take a look - http://www.useragentman.com/tests/html5Widgets/bradshawenterprises.com/index.html

And if you would like to explore more about how people do HTML5 in the industry, you can this tool to generate your own HTML5 template, just trial and error and play around with it - http://switchtohtml5.com/
